kentucky is like foreign travel. these guys can't tell the difference between a coal miner and a european male model. but you know, they think they know what is best for all of the rest of us. they know that as long as they can hold the senate with their kentucky candidate, they can do anything they want. they make fun of us at cocktail parties. they say we are bitter countryfolk who cling to our guns and our religion. i've had about enough of that. we are not going to take it anymore. needs to wagebama his war on coal. we know what we need to do to stop him.
